I really ran it hard and for at least 1 and a half hour, and it definitely ran colder.
For the temp measurement i mounted a modern pt100 element with its own gauge , so I am pretty sure that the temp measurement is correct.
I have the old copper radiator ( two rows) and it is definitely not 100% ok as the lower left corner do not get warm. ( close to the return to the engine)
I guess they the problem of running without the thermostat is they the majority of the water will circulate in the pump / radiator without entering the engine?
Anyway I will leave the thermostat in and watch my temperature.
With regarding to the reading of the fuel gauge it it almost the opposite, even If I fill the tank it only shows 3/4 full, and empty seems to be around 1 /8 ?
